ASIC checks coming to an airport near you

The security regulator (no not CASA) has sent out a letter to industry advising that AFP and or Transport Security Inspectors will be conducting ASIC checks and display compliance at airports in the near future.
I guess they have listened to those who complained about what a waste of time cards were, how no one ever checks them and nothing would happen if you got caught.
If you complain long and hard enough the government will give you what you ask for.

I've just had my ASIC tattooed straight onto my left bicep.

My mate Snake Eyes did a great job, coloured and all you can hardly tell it's a facsimile!

If you are concerned about not having your ASIC appropriately displayed when airside, if it keeps you up at night, I am more than happy to put you in touch with Snake Eyes so he can imprint your card to skin too!

(And the ladies love it )

Saw a guy wearing a sweat band around his head with his ASIC glued to it in the middle of his forehead.

Arrhh the Marlboro ASIC

Ole m8 Jones never did get his initial ASIC renewed > instead, the legend cut out the front of a Marlboro pkt & probably has still got the same thing on display

As one could expect > he drinks the money he saves on that piece of SH*T

If you are airside without a current ASIC and you are required to have one, be very careful as you probably will get fined heavily..........

Or not, I reckon most PPRuNe posters wander around airside without their expensive ASIC correctly displayed, and I don't know anyone who's been called on it. (Mind you, I don't wander around SY, BN, or ML much.)

My best ASIC adventure (really truely):
I turned up at major northern airport to collect an aircraft and called the ground guys to get through the gate.
"Have you got an ASIC?"
"Yes I do"
"Oh good, I can do my random ASIC check for today."
(The ground guys at that airport have always been very helpful, and obviously didn't want to cause anyone any fuss.)

At a regional QLD airport a local worker approached me and asked for my ASIC, which I retrieved from my wallet. He didn't bother looking at it, but instead he insisted that if he saw it dangling around my neck at a distance, then he wouldn't then be bothered to check it.
"So any bit of red card on a lanyard would suffice?", I asked.
He simply looked at me confused and walked away.

If you are checked, I can pretty well guarantee that the AFP / OTS inspectors will be a lot more thorough.

I find this all a bit stupid really the whole ASIC thing. Take Parafield for example.Anyone who has a need for a gate swipe card ie owners,LAMEs,pilots in a club or syndicate,Instructors etc only have to apply to the airport owner to get one. Once they have this they can come and go as they desire, as they should be able to. So why should big brother check on them wearing an ASIC? If after all they can let themselves in the gate to go airside they must therefore have a legal right and be approved to do so in the first place.

mostlytossas, that's pretty similar to MSIC's - at a particular port operator in Sydney, you can go through the security gate but require an MSIC to go onto the wharf. What's on the wharf which perhaps equates to being airside? a line stating maritime zone.

However once past the security gate either by swipe or signing on, it's not like security follow you around.

Another form of government Id does the trick but the gov makes more revenue but adding another layer, smart and efficient nation.

The dog looked smarter

Reminds me of a time in a previous life on deployment with 11 SQN to Townsville.

I had left something in the aeroplane and went to retrieve it. On the way out I was startled to see a service copper, with the biggest German Shepherd I had ever seen straining at the leash. Barking and gnashing of teeth.

I pulled my ID out of my wallet, assessed the situation, and showed the ID to the dog.

With my previous dealings with service police I'm sure the dog had the greater IQ.

Story time!

I love Story Time!

Anyway. This one day I was at this airport, you know swanning around as one does, when this airport 'official' accosted me on the tarmac.

He pointed to my chest and mumbled something.

I looked at him in surprise and said "Excuse me my Dear Chap, I don't quite understand your language. As an educated fellow I am used to effective and concise communication, in fact it is a cornerstone of my profession, so if you would like to try again please use plain English!"

Once again he thrust his dirty thick finger in my direction but this time through his ramblings I caught the word "ASIC".

Rolling my eyes I proceeded once again to lecture him on the proper use of grammar and that 'Yes indeed, I was a professional crew member lawfully permitted to access the sterile area of a Federally controlled airport'.. when I happened to glance down.

Low and behold!

Silly me, my ASIC had actually flipped on the lanyard and was facing inwards so the red side was not showing! So while he could see the large AIRBUS lettering he couldn't see my identification!

"My dear chap!" I exclaimed!

Apologizing profusely I flicked my ASIC card around and to his delight he could see that it was in fact an original, he turned on his heels and was on his way.

I skipped off myself, delighting in the marvelous conditions and looking forward to the aviation ahead, singing to myself and feeling very lucky to be alive!
